This is an excellent recipe that can be used with almost any fish. I used a thin fresh walleye filet. Due to the high oven temperature, the secret to success is to use a thin cut of fish. I recommend 1” thick or less. Too thick and the crust will burn before the fish is done. Since the recipe calls for cod filets, most frozen cod is usually too thick and should be horizontally cut in half before applying the crust and baking. I also took other reviewers advice and used the salt & vinegar chips. I recommend using a food processor to “crush” the chips. Once the chips were crushed, I added the cheese to the processor and gave it just a couple of more rotations to evenly mix the cheese and chips


So, this dish is so yummy! I did'nt have chips or the cheese recomended. So I used ritz crackers and monterey jack cheese, adding grated parmesean to the mix. After marinating the fish in the dressing, I sprinkled it on both sides with garlic salt, black pepper, and red chili pepper. It came out great -watch your hand with the chili pepper if you dont like spicy food. Enjoy!


This is a delicious TASTING recipe.
